My wife is 51 years old and she experiences the most unbearable hot flashes and it has not only interrupted our sleep time but also our love life. Before she started having nighttime sweats, mood changes and being tired all the time, we had an active sex life. What can we do? Unbearable Hot Flashes, Nevada
Dear Unbearable Hot Flashes:
By the time a women go through the change of life, her body will experience many hormonal changes, which might not only cause an interruption in her sleep pattern but her sex life also.
First of all you need to understand that not all women have issues with hot flashes. The number one reason she is experiencing this is probably because of her diet, especially if she eats GMO processed foods – any foods in packages, bags, cans, jars, etc. – foods that have been altered.
Remember that all beef and chicken are fed “Bovine Growth Hormones,” which is steroid to make the beef produce more milk and cause the chickens to become larger, so she needs to clean up her diet and stop eating beef, chicken, eggs and drinking milk and eating other dairy products, which causes hot flashes.
Even white bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, corn and other high-carb foods can also contribute to cycles of moodiness and fatigue when you have hot flashes.
However, a woman can take a little more control over the consequences of her symptoms by eating better, exercising and getting plenty of sleep.
